Healthcare Transition: Moving from Pediatric to Adult Health
Transitioning from pediatric health care physicians, the adult medical system can be overwhelming when you have special health care needs and a strong relationship with your healthcare team. Ideally, the transition discussion begins several years before you need to be in the adult healthcare system. As families and physicians look more closely at this issue, here is a webinar that discusses this transition from the doctors point of view.
Alda Maria Gonzaga, MD, MS and Reed Van Deusen, MD, MS, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center in Pennsylvania discuss the process of transferring to adult oriented health care. Transferring to adult health care is a process and this webinar focuses on the beginning stages of that transition process. This short webinar will also discuss what to expect at the first adult medical visit and what to bring with you.
